I created a horizontal Navigation control with a Subform underneath it.
I want to change the control to be vertical. I change the span to be vertical, but how do I move the subform to the side?

- Open the form in Design View
- Select the controls, such as your subform, that you want to move or resize freely
- On the Arrange Tab, click "Remove Layout" (You may have to do this with each part of your form one at a time)

That will 'free' the connection that the parts of your form have to each other and allow you to move/size the components independently.

See the image below.  (RemoveLayout is greyed out in my picture, because the layout has already been removed)

As an aside, that method also frees the frustrating lock between controls in Access's Split Forms.
